Ghost Town Siege

In sleepy old Perth, where the shops close at 6:00 pm every day, it seems someone has decided to liven things up for us a bit. has said that the Perth Stock Exchange Building is under siege by a guy with a gun. For the benefit of the US audience – guns in Perth are pretty much only seen IN gun clubs and on rifle ranges. It would be like a tank rolling through the streets of New York – it just doesn’t happen.

Unfortunately, my window doesn’t face the building, but there are a couple of helicopters hovering just outside my window (my phone camera doesn’t take good closeups, but if they turn out ok, I’ll post them here) and the police have blocked off part of one of our main streets.
